As I’ve posted before, I’m moderating a National Book Critics Circle panel in Philadelphia on February 27. I’m happy to announce that we’ve just added Ben Yagoda as our fifth panelist. The book dork in me is jumping for joy. I reviewed Yagoda’s When You Catch an Adjective, Kill It: The Parts of Speech, for Better And/Or Worsefor the newsletter of the American Society of Journalists, and I love his work, which you can read about here. He’s a great addition to our panel, which also includes poet and PEW fellow Daisy Fried; retired-as-of-5pm-today Philadelphia Inquirer book review editor Frank Wilson; author of In the Shadow of the Law: A Novel Kermit Roosevelt; and me. Just another reason to come out to this free — yes, free — event. Mark it: February 27 at 7pm, Friends Select (17th and Benjamin Franklin Parkway) in Philadelphia.
